Medication reconciliation is a process where our pharmacists work together with patients, families and other health care providers to ensure accurate and comprehensive medication information is communicated consistently across transitions of care (ie. From hospital to community and vise versa).
Lack of communication between community and hospital health care providers is common. With a lack of communication, there is an increased risk of medication errors occuring (especially as a result of unintended medication changes). At Marion Pharmacy, our pharmacists ensure lines of communication are always open with other healthcare providers and healthcare centers so that medication errors are avoided.
